Nothing. It was originally put in by Nintendo with the anticipation that something would go there as an add on later that they could sell. In Japan the only thing was the Stellaview but that never came to America. They later added Extention ports to the N64, again only in Japan this is the 64DD short for Disk Drive and didn't leave Japan due to it being a commercial failure. Other EXTention ports can be found on the Gameboy, Virtual Boy, and Gamecube. All with the idea of system connectivity and post-release peripherals.

To reiterate, it doesn't do anything. Not in NTSC anyway.

Was originally planed to have a cd console attached like the Sega cd. They first worked with Philips (giving us 3 zelda games and a mario game on the Phillips cdi), than they worked with Sony. Sony broke away and gave birth to the Sony PlayStation.

It is like Taylor Said ^ It was meant for a CD Expansion, or the Stellaview same reason most Nintendo Consoles have the same port except it was only really released in Japan and are extremely expensive. It was also meant for Nintendo Test Stations, since the disc drive nor Stellaview were released in the U.S. it's primary function became for the Nintendo Diagnostic/Test Stations.

They originally were working with Sony to produce a console that would utilize both cartridge and disc games, however when Nintendo decided to work with Phillips, for reasons that I will not go into detail for, they breached Sony's contract. Sony then later released the PlayStation with the slogan "PlayStation, It Only Does Everything!" it is also the same reason why some PlayStation commercials began with the commercials for Sega and Nintendo and led into theirs, that way they were able to show the consumer that they are better than Nintendo and SEGA.
